My Twinn Maypole Dress
This dress is made with a border fabric of little girls dancing barefoot around a Maypole with little butterflies floating above them. I really love this fabric and wanted to do something really special with it. I decided to continue the theme of the Maypole ribbon up the bodice added lace to the bottom edge, zigzag trim on the cuffed sleeves and installed a zipper in the back. To complete the look I added elastic bloomers with lace trim, a netted tulle half slip and white cotton slip to add more fullness to the dress and lastly made a matching hair ribbon. The shoes and tights were ordered through the My Twinn website. Don't you just love its pink frilly sweetness!
